Lenovo Tab S8

The Lenovo Tab S8 is an Android tablet that looks unremarkable in its simple tablet design. It measures 210 x 124 x 7.9 mm and weighs only 299 g. Its small size and light weight allows users to hold it in one hand comfortably. The 8 inch IPS screen has a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels (283 ppi). Colors are vibrant and rich and the brightness is impressive. The IPS LCD technology offers accurate colors and wide viewing angles.

The 8 MP main camera features a LED flash, auto focus, geo tagging and a camcorder function, while the front-facing camera is less impressive at 1.6 MP. The main camera is capable of taking sharp photos even in the dark. The Lenovo Tab S8 features a Intel's Bay Trail-T Atom quad core processor, 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage. The storage capacity can be expanded with a microSD card. The Tab S8 runs on Android 4.4 KitKat with additional Lenovo software pre-installed.

In terms of connectivity, it has a USB 3.0 port, a microUSB connector, tethering and 4.0 Bluetooth. The battery can last for up to seven hours, which is a little shorter than expected for a tablet device.

Lenovo Tab S8-50LC

Users highly recommend the Lenovo Tab S8 because of its high powered functionality and reasonable price tag. This tablet has an 8 inch screen with resolution of 1920 x 1200 and a rather high pixel density of 283 ppi. The display is a multitouch IPS LCD that supports up to 10 touch points. The screen reaction time is smooth and not delayed. Another pro is that it only weighs about 300 g and is only 8 mm thick. This is very light and portable for a tablet its class. It runs the latest Android 4.4 OS, also called the KitKat. The processor is an Intel Atom Z3745 quad core processor that can clock up to 1.3 GHz, 2 GB RAM and 16 GB internal storage. The storage capacity can be increased by up to 32 GB with a microSD. There are two cameras, a 1.6 MP front camera and a 8 MP rear camera. The 4.8 inch width of the tablet makes it extremely comfortable for one-handed. The only downside is that battery life is limited to about 7 hours with the non-removable battery, which may be inconvenient for users who need their tablets for an entire day outside. Overall, the high performance hardware in this gadget makes the short battery lifespan worthwhile.

Looks and feels alright in hand, nice screen, fast enough for everyday use, decent battery life, front facing speakers, fair price (if you can find it discounted). No oleophobic coating, the screen has a yellow tint, slow USB transfer speeds.

Comment

Lenovo: Lenovo ( "Le" as in the English word legend and "novo" (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. From 2004, the company has been the largest laptop manufacturer in China and got the fourth largest manufacturer worldwide after the acquisition of IBM's PC division in 2005. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company also produces monitors, projectors, servers, etc.

In 2011, Lenovo acquired the majority of Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer. In 2014, Lenovo took over Motorola Mobility, which gave them a boost in the smartphone market.

From 2014 to 2016 Lenovo's market share in the global notebook market was 20-21%, ranking second behind HP. However, the distance decreased gradually. In the smartphone market, Lenovo did not belong to the Top 5 global manufacturers in 2016.


Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

Intel HD Graphics (Bay Trail):

Integrated GPU for tablet and notebook Bay Trail SoCs. Based on the Ivy Bridge GPU with four Execution Units and support for DirectX 11.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Atom: The Intel Atom series is a 64-Bit (not every model supports 64bit) microprocessor for cheap and small notebooks (so called netbooks), MIDs, or UMPCs. The speciality of the new architecture is the "in order" execution (instead of the usual and faster "out of order" execution). Therefore, the transistor count of the Atom series is much lower and, thus, cheaper to produce. Furthermore, the power consumption is very low. The performance per Megahertz is therfore worse than the old Pentium 3M (1,2 GHz on par with a 1.6 GHz Atom).

Z3745: Soc with an integrated quad core Atom processor clocked at up to 1.86 GHz (Turbo), an Intel HD Graphics GPU and a dual channel LPDDR3-1067 memory controller.
